there is a growing mood among independents concerning this shutdown and the pending debt ceiling debacle. They know that the Republicans are more to blame for the shutdown by playing a game of stupid politics that they couldn't win. But over the last week they have seen intransigence on both sides. The President and Senator Reid coming on TV saying they will not negotiate. Although most or a majority of Independents blame the Republicans for the shutdown, they are angry at both parties for continuing the shutdown. A CNN/ORC poll of independents and independents only showed 60% angry at the Republican Congress, 59% angry at the Democrats in congress and 58% angry at President Obama.
Now Independents don't care who started it, don't care who is to blame, they do however want it over. Their ire and wrath are now coming down on both sides for keeping this shutdown gone and they view it as both sides playing political games, games of one up man ship with the future of the country. Let's just get this fixed and move on is their mantra. How doesn't matter, who gets what doesn't matter, who wins and loses doesn't matter, who was right and who was wrong doesn't matter. they view those in Washington from the president on down as egotistical bas-tards who love playing games with other peoples lives. Let's just get this fixed.
